Joel Holmberg, "Smoke Detectors on Lattice"

Joel Holmberg


Joel Holmberg’s work spans sculpture, websites, and digital images. Imagery and forms seemingly come from any source imaginable, spanning production from all points in history, from Chinese Qing dynasty cabinets to contemporary flat panel screens. His work incorporates a variety of contemporary means of production, from 3D printing to the the very tactile process of layering inkjet cartridge ink over moulded forms. Tellingly, a past statement on Holmberg’s website read that he “creates art with computers and his bare hands.”

Holmberg is currently an MFA candidate in sculpture at Yale University. Recent group exhibitions include Rhododendron curated by Harm van den Dorpel at W139 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and At This Writing at PM Galerie in both Brooklyn and Berlin.
